Applications should be made in writing to the Table Office by 7.00pm or rise of the House, whichever is the earlier, on Wednesday 11 September. The ballot will take place on Thursday 12 September. Deadlines will be brought forward should Parliament be prorogued earlier.


There will be no Westminster Hall debates in the new Session of Parliament until the debate on the Queen’s Speech has concluded (Standing Order No. 10(2)(a)).

The new rota for answering departments will be published in the Order Paper as soon as it is available, and Members will be able to submit applications when that rota is published.



Nominations must be received in writing in the Table Office or Procedural Hub by 12 noon on Tuesday 10 September.

In accordance with the House’s decision of 4 July 2017 only members of the Conservative Party may be candidates in this election.

Each nomination shall consist of a brief signed statement made by the candidate declaring their willingness to stand for election, accompanied by the signatures of 15 Members elected to the House as members of the same party as the candidate. Statements may (optionally) be accompanied by signatures of up to five Members elected to the House as members of any party other than that to which the candidate belongs, or members of no party.

No Member may sign more than one such statement; if any Member does so, their signature will be invalidated for all nominations.


If there is more than one candidate, the ballot will take place between 10.00am and 1.30pm on Wednesday 11 September in Committee Room 15.
